The focus of this paper is to identify the factors impeding housing affordability. Different parameters have been identified; these include location, design efficiency, construction material, infrastructure, services, neighborhood design and financial assistance. This paper highlights, how all these parameters could be made effective in order to realize the goal of making housing affordable.
